Ozzy Osbourne to Play Israel, Won't Bow to Pressure

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ozzy Osbourne will bring his Ozzfest festival to Israel in September. His wife and manager Sharon Osbourne, who's father is Jewish, gave a special video conference announcing that they would not cancel the show for any political reasons.

“Music goes beyond politics because it is the international language of the world," she said. “I could not be more excited or proud about bringing Ozzfest to Israel for the first time.” She also stated that they hadn't received any calls to boycott Israel, unlike some other big name acts. The tours promoters promise several Israeli metal bands will perform as well.
Also performing will be the Grammy award winning band Korn, who's lead singer Jonathan Davis released a short video promo expressing his excitment for the Israeli tour date. Korn's former guitarist Brian "Head" Welch travelled to Israel in 2005 to be baptized in the Jordan River after quitting the band to become a born-again Christian.
